About The Featured Wiki:


The Featured Wiki showcases wikis to share them with the rest of Elftown. If you find a particularly interesting wiki-page that you think should be a featured wiki, nominate it, and help spread the wiki love. There are so many wiki pages here in Elftown that are interesting, funny, serious, artistic, or otherwise awesome and they are not always well-known within the Elftown community. The Featured Wiki gives people a chance to let us (and the rest of Elftown) know about some of the nifty pages out there.

If your nomination follows all the rules, and we think it is pretty awesome as well, then you might see it featured on Main Street! One wiki page will be chosen bi-weekly and placed on Main Street. The page will also be rated, (See: About Wiki-Ratings). So other than two whole weeks of advertising on Main Street, you get some permanent benefit from having your wonderful page rated.

To see previous featured wiki-pages, go to Featured Wiki Archives 

How do I nominate a wiki?

Just go to Wiki nominations and add your nomination to the list, but make sure you've read the rules about nominations, first!

If you have any questions, comments, and concerns, you may ask [Stephen] or any member of the Council.

Or, if you wish, you may leave a comment on this page.

2004-04-15 [Ocean Dreaming]: Hrm... so I'm mentioned here, but not on the nominations page :/ *ends up confused* (btb - message answer might be better than comment)

2004-04-15 [Aradon Templar]: How will the features be decided? I don't think a poll would be very good, because large wiki organizations (I've seen several already) may get lots of members to vote, which wont give new wiki's a chance to be displayed, and miss that chance...

2004-04-15 [*Nomadic Lover*]: how do you make wikis?

2004-04-15 [Aradon Templar]: See the section in the sidebar up there that says "Go"? Type the name of the wiki to make, and click go. Edit the page, and it's real.

2004-04-16 [Ocean Dreaming]: Assuming they're in the line of the Daily Art rules, the features are probably chosen in a similar fashion. ;)

2004-04-16 [Aradon Templar]: K, thanks.

2004-04-26 [HiddenFire]: so how is it going? this seems to have gone cold for a while.

2004-04-26 [All_Most PUNK]: We are working on it. It will be a monthly thing, surely, so we have to find a good system for it. You'll have news soon.

2004-04-26 [Aradon Templar]: It seems to have quieted down once it was taken down from mainstreet... Perhaps you guys might want to make a link from mainstreet here...

2004-04-26 [True, plain and simple]: Hm I'll link it later as a calander note.

2004-04-26 [mywolfalways]: If people link to it from their houses or their wikis it'll get more attention.

2004-05-05 [Sheona]: I think this will grow more as time goes on. Things are bound to be a little slow when starting off.

2004-05-09 [Ayeaka]: I think that this is a wonderful idea! It might be a nice way for a less know wiki to get more members if it wins!

2004-05-20 [Sheona]: I was just curious, is there any link to this page from anywhere else in elftown? It strikes me that this page can be a little hard to find for people who don't know about it.

2004-05-20 [HiddenFire]: perhaps it is not made well known so as to keep the number of submissions down. eventually word will spread and as more and more wiki-pages get selected it will become more well known. the number of submissions as it is is quite large, i know i wouldnt want to be the one checking through them all. @;@

2004-05-20 [Sheona]: Lol. That's a very fair point! It just makes it a little harder for the wikis of this month to be seen.

2004-05-20 [HiddenFire]: It was shown on mainstreet but the Graphic competition message took its place.

2004-05-20 [True, plain and simple]: There is a link from the index. There is a link to the results on Fame, I think, as well. A fair portion of the wikis might get disquallified immediately; either the person didn't follow the rules in submitting, or the wiki itself just isn't something we'd like to show period. It was shown on Mainstreet, yes..But then we took it down. Maybe next month I'll leave it up for the entire month. :)

2004-05-20 [All_Most PUNK]: To Hiddenfire: You sure you don't want to check them? *says wrily, and cleans the dust of lots of wiki pages from his pullover* :P

2004-05-23 [Aradon Templar]: When a new one is selected every month, is it announced on mainstreet, or should I check this place regularly?

2004-05-23 [All_Most PUNK]: We'll announce it in the mainstreet. It will be chosen for the 1st, surely

2004-07-02 [-Ryouga-]: Sexy Sean

2004-07-06 [Amber.]: hello kids

2004-09-09 [Arany]: hey, can i make a suggestion? wouldn't it be helpfull, besides the nice words the featured wikis receive, to have some on how to improve the wikis as well? they may be featured, but they are not perfect and that could help raising the general wiki quality...

2004-09-09 [Ocean Dreaming]: No, it wouldn't. People don't want to hear an in-depth report on how to improve. They want the publicity and the knowledge that a place they made/love has won some form of award for the hard work already done. It beats the point of giving a reward if you knock them down with a sledge hammer the moment after.

2004-09-10 [HiddenFire]: Actually there is something to his suggestion. Though I agree with [Ocean Dreaming] on this one. Would there be a wiki devoted to suggesting the things that makea good wiki? Things people are looking for, Things to consider, suggestions, tips, etc... It would at least be helpfull to those who want to start up their own little sub-comunity. But not in the featured wiki awards. The last thing we need to hear is "you won! But we hated this or that and suggest fixing it." Ack! What a kick in the face that would be! @.@

2004-09-10 [Ocean Dreaming]: Exactly. The wiki awards are *awards*, you don't tell a person who won a drawing competition that they DO need to work on their hands, for example.

2004-09-10 [Arany]: you're probabaly right on this one. well i had one of my wikis featured although I thought it had some serious gaps... it would have been more like a chalendge than a hammer kick to receive some suggestions on how to improve it! but that's me, i go for "there's always room for improvement", other people may have different opinions

2004-11-30 [All_Most PUNK]: The wiki awards are back after a long time. There's been a problem with the old versions of the wikis, so I couldn't find every person that had nominated a wiki to give them the guestbook message. Sorry. Still, you know who you are.

2005-01-10 [swabloo]: what happens if your wiki gets featured for the top ten?

2005-01-11 [All_Most PUNK]: Well, more people know that it exists.

2005-02-24 [Blakkduv]: so if i nominate something i get a badge??

2005-02-24 [Sunrose]: No :)

2005-05-13 [*Night_Shade*]: Wait...My rpg Half-Life just won...do I get a badge? 0.0

2005-05-13 [All_Most PUNK]: nop. We don't give badges for that. Sorry :D

2005-05-13 [*Night_Shade*]: Aw, that sux *points to badge above* False advertisement *pouts*

2005-05-13 [All_Most PUNK]: Nop, that's the bosses badge. It gives an officcial look to the thing ;)

2005-05-13 [*Night_Shade*]: Aw, damn. Ah well hehe

2005-06-18 [SpiralDragon]: Im just glad my wiki made it to the top ten!^_^

2005-06-19 [*Night_Shade*]: *nod nod* I almost fell off my seat when I saw mine was number 1 lol

2005-06-20 [All_Most PUNK]: The order is aleatory, shade. They are all good and deserve to be there.

2005-06-22 [*Night_Shade*]: I wasn't bragging, or gloating or whatever you might call it. I was simply proud and stating as such. I know they're all amazing wikis, probably many of them better than mine

2005-07-13 [shaybaby16]: How else can you get your wiki ([Dragon Adoption Agency]) propular besides the nominations?? i mean like..how can you get lots of ppl?

2005-07-13 [Yoruno]: Try the Advertizement forum, add a link to it in your mood, uhm... but nothing's for sure, you know?

2006-04-08 [Sandeee(:]: wat do u go to to make a wiki?? i cant figure that out!! grrrrrr

2006-04-09 [iippo]: You type the name of the wiki into the "Wiki-page" -box (right side of screen) and press 'go'. If the page is empty, you can press "edit this page" and write whatever you want on it. If it's not empty, someone else owns it and you should think of another name for your wiki.

2008-02-04 [Hedda]: There is now a featured wiki slot on Mainstreet!

[SilverFire] told me to fix one, so blame her!
<img:stuff/dand-gif.gif>

2008-02-04 [SilverFire]: *cheers* <img:44166_1164145171.gif>

2008-02-07 [Janouk]: Wow, awesome! :)

2008-02-08 [All_Most PUNK]: Silverfire, I won't let you be all humble, so there's your name between the bosses.

2008-02-08 [sequeena_rae]: Indeed, you more than deserve to be there :P

2008-02-08 [All_Most PUNK]: Also, she deserves a badge.

2008-02-08 [SilverFire]: I was going to wait a few weeks to prove I was hanging around, and then sneakily add myself when I edited under the pretext of fixing a typo, or something. :P

2008-02-08 [sequeena_rae]: All done :P

2008-02-08 [All_Most PUNK]: Yeah... Didn't work.

2008-03-08 [Delladreing]: Waaai! Oh you can tell I need sleep, I clicked on thi page and only saw the Playgans banner while everything else was loading. I was so confused, I was so sure I'd clicked the featured wiki page XD *mental collapse* Thankee :3

2008-04-07 [Kuramasgirl]: Oh wow, thank you so much! :D Would've never expected this. o.o

2008-05-04 [playslashwrite]: same here:O like totally out of the blue! but i appriciate it greatly nontheless:D thank thee o thank thee!:D

2008-05-07 [Imperator]: Trennas, would you be willing to contribute your story to the Elftown Archives? We collect all kinds of Elftowners written works and create a link to each.

2008-07-17 [Imperator]: "Elftown - Contributions" should be "Elftown - Contribution".

2008-07-17 [SilverFire]: Changed, thanks. :3

2008-07-17 [Imperator]: :-)

2008-07-29 [Lord Dog]: Hey all , just like to say thanks for making my wiki a featured wiki

2008-08-01 [Atayemi]: Me can't edit. :( Need password0rz!

2008-11-11 [Chimes]: The link leads to no where. =S

2008-11-12 [All_Most PUNK]: Fixed.

2008-11-12 [SilverFire]: ... you mean it wasn't already fixed? :S I kind of ignored Chime's comment because when I clicked on it, it took me to the right page, so I assumed someone had already fixed it...

2008-11-12 [SilverFire]: *checks* Yes, it did. For me, at least. :/

2008-11-12 [All_Most PUNK]: The first one worked fine, but the second one (the one in the text) had an ยด instead of an '.

2008-11-12 [Ramirez]: I fail at life. lol

2008-11-13 [All_Most PUNK]: The universe is against us.

2008-11-13 [Ramirez]: Indeed.

2008-11-13 [SilverFire]: No, it's just against you, Pubky.

2008-11-13 [All_Most PUNK]: And against Ramirez :P

2008-11-13 [SilverFire]: No, that was just because he's associated with you. :P It's all your fault. FASCIST.

2008-11-13 [All_Most PUNK]: Oh, I'm sure that his association with me has brought him only happiness and good times! (Leaving aside the PUNK curse, of course).

2008-11-13 [Ramirez]: Oh noes! I've been cursed? D=

2008-11-13 [All_Most PUNK]: Yeah. But I'm sure I told you of the curse before you started working with us.

2008-11-13 [Chimes]: The curse? O.O Should I know about this curse?

2008-11-13 [All_Most PUNK]: Well, you are working with me in Herald, right? And I didn't tell you about the curse?

2008-11-13 [Chimes]: I am... and no, you didn't :P

2008-11-13 [All_Most PUNK]: I kinda thought I had. I've been warning everybody for a while now. Though since it applies mostly to Featured Members and Wiki Awards I may have thought it not importante.
Essentially, those who work with me in any of those features die. Not real death, but ET death.

2008-11-13 [Ramirez]: Oh curses. <img:stuff/mood11-gif.gif>

2008-11-13 [Chimes]: Eeep! That's a scary thought... but I wont be dying. :P

2008-11-13 [All_Most PUNK]: No, no, I think it's only one.

2008-11-13 [All_Most PUNK]: *shrugs* Everybody says the same. And yet...

2008-11-13 [Chimes]: They meet their untimely demise... *sigh* It's a sad tale..

2008-11-13 [SilverFire]: Troofax, Pubky killed me!

2009-03-13 [Nocturnaliss]: Oh my, I hadn't noticed Artistic Enquiries has been featured! Thank you so much <3!

2010-07-29 [dancingsheep]: I'd be happy to help with this, if help is needed. :D

2010-10-16 [pixish]: I was just wondering if maybe the image at the top should actually be the Featured Wiki badge, instead of the Featured Wiki Boss badge?

2010-10-16 [pixish]: (even though the bunny is way cuter ;) )

2011-04-27 [iippo]: Hall of the Badge reward system? XP

2011-06-11 [Captain Rachel Black]: "everyone's favorite Captain of course" awwww ^_^

2011-06-11 [Rice]: Did I butter you up good? :D

2011-06-13 [Captain Rachel Black]: like a muffin! (considers the innuendo of that statement)

2011-08-18 [Rice]: Oh yes..oh yes.

2012-02-02 [Aeolynn]: So... the last featured wiki was from November? Isn't there a new wiki to be awarded?

2012-02-02 [Rice]: People have been busy with University and what not so sadly it meant that the featured wiki got left unattended for a while, however, with the first semester's exams closing, it'll be back on board soon. :)

2012-02-04 [Aeolynn]: Nice! I look forward to it

2012-06-25 [Mortified Penguin]: Bob's Diner would make a pretty great featured wiki!

2013-05-01 [Mortified Penguin]: Bob's Diner would still make a pretty great featured wiki!

Also, it's... getting close to a year since the last update.

2013-06-19 [Stephen]: A few of the people listed above to ask for help from, are not listed as being bosses any longer. :P

2013-06-19 [Mortified Penguin]: Yup. And it's been over a year now...

2014-07-16 [Nioniel]: Yay! New feature! :)

2014-07-23 [Figgy]: :D

2014-07-23 [Stephen]: Hopefully my little text does it some justice. :)

2014-07-23 [Figgy]: It does, thanks!

2014-07-24 [Duredhel]: Thank you so much for the feature :D!
Hopefully we can get more players now XD.

2014-07-24 [Stephen]: You're welcome! <img:44166_1164145171.gif>
